             Instructional Media

 CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background of the Study

The use of media to enhance teaching and learning complements traditional approaches to learning. Effective instruction builds bridges between students’ knowledge and the learning objectives of the subject. Using instructional media engages student’s aid, student retention of knowledge motivates interest in the subject matter, and illustrates the relevance of many concepts (Oshodi, 2009).

As observed by Schramm (2007), instructional media includes all the materials substantial resources that an educator might use to implement instruction and facilitate students’ achievement of instructional objectives. This may include traditional materials such as chalkboards, printed material (handouts, books, and worksheets), display board charts, slides, overheads, real objects or models, DVDs, CD-ROMs, interactive whiteboard, the internet, and interactive video conferencing etc. it facilitates learning or increase understanding of materials and enhances comprehension of the learners.

According to Azikiwe (2007), instructional media cover whatever a teacher uses to involve all the five senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste while presenting his/her lesson.

In a similar vein, Adegun (2012) says instructional media are things which are intended to help the teacher to teach more effectively and enable the students to learn more readily. Instructional media are information carriers designed specifically to fulfill objectives in a teaching-learning situation. They are very important in the teaching of science subjects such as Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics because they facilitate the direct association between listening and understanding. They help to vividly illustrate the meaning of things because they are associated with materials used by the teacher to improve the quality of his teaching.

However, the common objectives of instructional media can grasp attention, sprouting interest, support learning with living examples and visual elaboration, making a learning environment in class. It also helps in turning learning of Biology an enjoying experience. Using instructional media prepared by a Biology teacher to teach the subject provides a concrete experience about the lesson for the students since they are seen or heard or both.

Modern classrooms which are equipped with audio-visual equipment and a rich collection of audio-visual materials for learning enable the teaching to plan ideal teaching-learning scenarios. Today, the teaching of some special topics in science such as Biology is facilitating through tape recordings, radio programs and television lessons (Adegun, 2004).

In addition, Lindstorm (2004) recognized that conventional media technologies can no longer meet the needs of our teaching and learning process; as a result, they are being replaced by multimedia technology. This instructional media provides a teaching-learning environment that is self-placed, learner-controlled and individualized. It is based on this premise that this study was in secondary schools.
